Minority Uighurs targeted
Activists say that Uighurs, targeted as separatists by the Chinese government, are simply fleeing violence in Xinjiang, where hundreds have died in recent years. The government blames the strife on Islamic militants and says Uighurs want to create their own breakaway state.
In a statement about Monday's incident, Dilxat Raxit, a spokesman for the exile group World Uyghur Congress wrote: "The accusation that they are suspected terrorists exposes China's hostile and discriminatory attitude."
"China's barbarian policy of shooting people dead before judicial interrogation should be prevented by the international community," said Raxit.
